As expected, actor William Fichtner admitted he will be playing the coveted bad guy role in the upcoming â€œTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesâ€ movie. He signed on to the cast a month ago, but his role wasnâ€™t revealed at the time.
During a telephone interview with HuffPost TV, he thought it was time to come out of the shadows.
â€œI play Shredder. It is cool. It’s one of those things that came along where I thought, “Really? Let me think about this for a minute.” [Laughs] Then I was like, “Yeah, OK, this sounds like a journey.” I’m very glad that it worked out, I’m really glad that I’m doing it.â€
He will also be playing the villain in next monthâ€™s â€œThe Lone Rangerâ€ as Butch Cavendish. The veteran thespian will also appear in the sci-fi â€œElysiumâ€ and star in the upcoming television show â€œCrossing Linesâ€ as Carl Hickman.
Fichtner is a great choice to play Shredder. Who else was he going to play after he signed on to this project?
â€œTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesâ€ is currently in production and is scheduled to be released next year on June 6.
